Alhambra police dog sniffs out burglary suspect

Enzo, an Alhambra police dog, sniffed out a burglary suspect Wednesday after the suspect allegedly attempted to exchange stolen merchandise at a Kohl’s department store, punched a security officer, and hid from officers in a nearby parking lot.

“In short, Enzo is really good at ‘Hide and Seek,’” Alhambra police posted Wednesday on Facebook.

A loss prevention officer was monitoring shoppers at the Kohl’s at 1201 S. Fremont Ave. when he stopped Richard Hurtado, 41, for allegedly attempting to exchange stolen merchandise, said Sgt. Jerry Johnson of the Alhambra Police Department. Hurtado, of Montebello, punched the loss prevention officer and fled on foot, running toward the parking lot of an office and academic campus across the street.

Alhambra police formed a perimeter around the parking lot at 1000 S. Fremont Ave. around 9:15 a.m., deploying a police helicopter and sending in K-9 dogs to find Hurtado, according to Johnson. Enzo alerted officers to a car and police found the suspect hiding in the vehicle. Hurtado surrendered peacefully and was booked on one charge of robbery.

Enzo, a 4-year-old Belgian Shepherd that has been with the Alhambra Police Department for two years, is trained in finding missing articles and people, Johnson said. The dog is also trained to find illegal drugs such as cocaine and heroin. Alhambra’s K-9 unit currently has three dogs: Enzo, Harm, and Abby.
